Khoon Bhari Maang (1988) - Rajesh Roshan

"Khoon Bhari Maang" opens with one of Rajesh Roshan's greatest compositions - the wonderfully cheerful "Hanste Hanste Kat Jaye Raaste." Beautifully sung by Sadhna Sargam and Nitin Mukesh, it appears on this record in three versions. It has such an infectious melody and beat that one never grows tired of hearing it again and again! Also on the Lp is the bouncy "Jeene Ke Bahanne Lakhon Hain" with a great vocal by Asha Bhosle. Another gem! Asha and Sadhna then team up for an excellent disco dance song called "Main Haseena Gazab Ki." Sadhna Sargam also sings the hauntingly beautiful "Main Teri Hoon Janam" which is almost a note for note copy of the theme for "Chariots of Fire." What a lovely and expressive voice she has. Nowadays, Sadhna Sargam is a top singer for the Tamil and Telugu film industries.

In conclusion, "Khoon Bhari Maang" is a lushly produced record with superb vocals and memorable songs. Highest recommendation!
